The root file system is represented by a (/) which is the top of the directory tree. This is roughly equivalent to your “C:” drive under DOS or Windows. User must create a partition for the root directory. The size of your root partition will differ depending on what you install or plan to install.

SWAP space on your hard drive can be used as virtual memory. Virtual memory allows your computer to run bulky programs and perform multifaceted tasks even if it does not have enough physical RAM. Data is written to a swap partition when there is not enough RAM to store the data your system is processing. Create one swap partition that is 50% to 100% the size of the physical RAM in your system. If you are short on RAM with plenty of drive space, go big. If you are short on drive space and have lots of RAM, go little.
